Best Western Lee Wood Hotel.

Perfectly placed in the Peak District.

The Best Western Lee Wood Hotel lies in Buxton, right at the heart of the Peak District National Park. In its own grounds, the hotel is the perfect base for a walking holiday, but equally appealing as a place to stay for those who want to explore the historic attractions and places of interest of Buxton Spa itself. Buxton Opera House is particularly attractive - built by Matcham in 1903, its a worthy focal point for a Buxton-based theatre break!

As a guest at the family-run Best Western Lee Wood Hotel, you'll be within touching distance of the Derbyshire Dales, a stones throw from Castleton and its fabulous caves, and even closer to an award-winning restaurant The Elements Restaurant within the hotel itself!

Thank You for taking the time to leave your comments on Trip Advisor. We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. All feedback that we received, be it positive or negative, is taken very seriously. We do provide water glasses in all the bedrooms however we believe wrapped plastic tumblers in the bathrooms are less of a health and safety risk. If you would like to discuss your stay with us in more details then please do not hesitate in contacting me on 01298 23002 or Yours Sincerely, Nicola
